I was so focused on wandering among the orchids at Longwood Gardens on Saturday that it didn't cross my mind to ask where the blue poppies were hiding. I didn't see a full exhibit but I did find one pot containing these beautiful blue flowers before I left the conservatory.

I'm always surprised at the difference daylight time makes for my after work walks.
The morning was hard, still very dark when my alarm woke me. The evening? The extra hour of late-day light meant that I was able to head out for my walk and return home before full dark. I like walking in daylight!

Yesterday's Longwood Gardens visit satisfied my end-of-winter desire to be surrounded by color. Orchids were scattered through the conservatory and there were many other flowers sharing colors as well. The orchids ranged from whites to brights, from simple combinations of color to intricate patterns, all beautiful.

Today I noticed a gaggle of robins standing on a small dirt patch surrounded by snow. They were hopping around this morning and they were there this afternoon too. I often see an isolated robin through the winter so I know some must live here year round, but I'll take the larger group as a sign of hope that spring is not too far away.
I'm waiting. I think the robins are waiting too.
